Winnie The Pooh

17 Jul

We all know Winnie the Pooh.

I grew up watching Winnie the Pooh cartoons, movies, etc and always loved the characters. However, I never read the original book by A.A. Milne. Lately I have been sentimental (reason coming soon) and have found many quotes that speak to me. All these quotes turned out to have one common denominator, they were written by A.A. Milne in the original Winnie the Pooh book.

Below are a few of my select favorites.

2. Going to dinner with some besites after work

3. Being grateful

I am about to revamp my bedroom and have been in the market for prints. I have yet to purchase any as I am not 100% sure on the color scheme I want to go with. While Etsy has been my go-to source for researching and bookmarking favorites, yesterday I learned about a brand new-to-me site via Camille.

Enter Minted.

 This site has a strong focus on nursery and children’s rooms but from what I have seen they have plenty of adorable prints that could work for me. The best part is every print comes in a variety of sizes to fit perfectly into any decor. Below are just a few of my favorites. Check out even more here.

Busy Bee

15 May

Lately I have been a busy, busy girl.

Between work, mini vacations, social plans, working out and keeping up with my DVR, I have barely found time to blog.

Even though I have been sparse on my blog posting, I have 100% been able to keep up with my blog reading (that is one perk to being caged working in a cubical all day) and love following along with all of you on your blogs!

I promise to try to be better but you see, I have also been busy planning.

Planning big things.

Soon enough I will share my plans but for right now here are some inspirational quotes that have been helping me along the way.

Sigh. Sometimes life is confusing.


Things that make me happy today:

1. The last 60 seconds of the Gossip Girl season finale. The rest was WHACK.

2. Figuring things out

3. Faith

[Amanda Catherine] Designs

3 May

I currently have a gallery wall of just pictures in my room. While these are some of my favorite pictures, they are all from college and the wall needs to be updated. I have been out of school for almost two years now and it’s time for a change. I will still keep some of the pictures but I also want to add new ones as well as some prints.

I have talked about [amanda catherine] designs before on here and once again, I’m lusting over her designs. They are simple, bright, fun and inspirational. What more could a girl want.

Here are just a few I may be adding to my gallery wall (when I get around to updating it)



Things that make me happy tonight:

1. Dinner date with a bestie

2. 4 day work weeks

3. Candles

There is something about balloons.

They bring us back to a childhood like state full of birthday parties and carefree attitudes.

 Today they are used for more than just a child’s birthday party. They have evolved over the years and now come in a rage of sizes, shapes and textures making them perfect to pair with a multitude of different occasions.

 These are just some of my favorite ways to incorporate them.

An engagement session: I love this. The beach, the balloons and the off-centered couple. Adorable.



A cruise: Boarding a yacht is already exciting, pair that with an amazing collection of colorful balloons and up the ante.


A special occassion: Waking up to a room full of balloons on your special day  


A Wedding: Under a bridge with bright, huge yellow balloons give this wedding party a private, unforgettable moment before the reception.




  How would you use the modern day balloon?  


Things that make me happy today:

1. Figuring out my future

2. Seeing the roomies after a weekend away

3. Full DVR


Thoughtful Tuesday

1 May

Pretty soon I am going to have to make some big decisions. These decisions have been weighing on me for some time now and I can’t exactly figure out the right thing to do.

I know what my heart wants but it’s conflicting with my mind.

But aren’t you supposed to listen to your heart?

Anyway, with the big decision getting closer and closer, this quote has been constantly on my mind.


It’s also one of Taylor’s favorite quotes. Funny how that works, huh? #soulsisters

Maybe I don’t have to have every thing figured out right away.

Maybe if I take one leap the rest will follow.

There is only one way to find out.


p.s. How the heck is it already May?! Eeeeeek!


Things that make me happy today:

1. Taylor Swift

2. Having faith

3. Possibilities

New Favorite Quote

19 Apr

Just stumbled across this quote and had to take a quick break from work to share.

I think it describes me to a tea.

I choose the latter. Which do you identify with?

Paint us a garden

16 Apr

One of my main hobbies is stalking any and all wedding blogs and websites.

No, I am not close to getting married. Heck, I’m not even dating anyone (ya hear that Zac? I’m holding out for you, lucky one).

Most of the things I pin have to do with weddings and I have a secret fear that when I am finally ready to be married Pinterest won’t exist.

I’ll forget about all the amazing ideas I have come across.

This is one of those ideas that I never want to forget so I’m blogging about it.

An Australian couple had the most amazing rustic wedding (check it out here) and as each guest entered they had them paint one piece of a garden on a canvas.

The result is a one-of-a-kind and priceless piece of artwork.
